A Part of the Minneapolis Miracle is Heading to the Hall of Fame
Four months later, and that play still gives me goosebumps!
It's a play that will forever be part of Minnesota Vikings lore, if not the greatest in team history. Dubbed the "Minneapolis Miracle" from play-by-play announcer Paul Allen, wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught a miraculous pass along the sidelines from quarterback Case Keenum and then took it to the house as time expired for a walk-off win against the New Orleans Saints back in January. The Vikings, who are normally on the receiving end of such a play, couldn't believe what had just transpired and it was supposed to catapult them into the promised land and their first Super Bowl victory.
While that never happened (they lost the following week to the eventual SB Champions, the Philadelphia Eagles) a part of their magical season will still go to the Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. According to Bleacher Report, the very cleats Diggs wore that night inside U.S. Bank Stadium will be enshrined within the hall for fans to see for generations to come.
Let's all watch it one more time:
